Pizza Dough :

Combine warm milk, yeast and sugar in a glass or a bowl. Leave to rise for about 5 minutes (until the mixture starts to foam on top). Ensure the milk isn't too hot, because it may kill the yeast.

In a large bowl, pour the dry ingredients and form a well in the flour and salt.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the center of the well. Work the dough into a soft, smooth consistency.

Form the dough into a ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean cloth and leave to rise for 30 minutes in a warm, damp place.

Tip: turn on the oven light, add a bowl of water and leave the dough to rise.

Sauce and toppings :

Once the dough has risen and been removed from the oven, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Divide into two balls and form two pizza bases about 20 cm (8 in.) in diameter and 1 cm (1/2 in.) thick. Place on baking sheet.

Peel and crush garlic cloves.

Place the sour cream, crushed garlic, pinch of pepper and grated Parmesan in a bowl and mix well. Cut mozzarella into thin slices.

Spread the sour cream mixture over the pizzas with the back of a spoon.

Top with mozzarella and bake until cheese is melted and crust is golden (15-20 minutes).

Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil leaves or chopped parsley.

Enjoy !


If you don't have the time to make your own pizza dough, store-bought dough will do the job just fine.

For an extra touch of flavour and freshness, add lemon zest and pesto before serving.

Serve with a salad for a quick and delicious meal!
